Description 

This pockety route has many choices of holds and pretty much all of them are sharp. The iron rock edges are not just at the lips but there are additional edges inside the pockets. That said you don't have to hold on that hard since the holds will grab your skin for you.

Long pulls between relatively good hold, though the next ne always seems just a bit further than it should be. Quite continuous for the grade and you never really get two good holds side by side or a good hold to match and rest on.

Location 

This route is the furthest left on the Solar Collector wall, pretty much right infront of you when you reach the wall from the approach trail.

Protection 

Bolts to a bolted anchor.
